MNRE issues second phase norms for rooftop solar programme

The MNRE has issued guidelines to implement the second phase of the rooftop solar programme. The government has set a target to install 100,000 MW of solar power capacity by 2022, of which 40,000 MW is to be achieved from the rooftop solar segment. It approved the second phase of the programme, comprising two main components, in February 2019. Under the first component, 4,000 MW of grid-connected rooftop solar projects will be installed in the residential sector with central financial assistance. Under the second component, incentives will be provided to distribution companies based on their achievements in the initial 18,000 MW of grid-connected rooftop solar plants.
